TCM recently ran a silent movie "The Call of the Cumberlands".

I thought there were a lot a similarities from that film to the Beverly Hillbillies that I had to think someone from CBS had seen that and made a sitcom out of it.

Dustin Farnum became Jed who had the wise leader role, "head of the clan" as Granny would say.

Winnifred Kingston as the young lady with an affinity for animals and a petite elderly lady became Granny.

Good catch, I passed on it and the Early Women Film Makers but I will check it out next time.

And after watching that, they must have watched this as the tail end of the double feature:
